29 September: Signing of the Munich Agreement (‘Münchner Abkommen’)

The First World War victorious powers are not ready to enter the war for preserving freedom and justice. Following the so-called Anschluss annexation of Austria in March, Hitler also wants to bring German-speaking Sudetenland, a part of Czechoslovak Republic (ČSR), ‘home to the Reich’ under threat of violence. In Munich, England, France, Italy and Germany agree to German occupation of this territory. The ČSR has to comply with this resolution. Western politicians trustingly announce Peace for our time.
